Exiled veers on the pretentious ...but the whole thing has such a humor about itself that it's hard to carp about it.

Lessons of Darkness

An electric, inventive amalgam of gonzo violence and lyrical sentimentality.

Eye for Film

Johnny To's direction is as smooth as a well-cut suit and the violence has a balletic intensity.

A simmering pot of blood and yucks, accented with guitar and harmonica on the soundtrack.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Less a movie than a phantasmagorical dream synthesised from Sergio Leone and Sam Peckinpah.

The finale is a slow-motion tour de force that blends style, elegance and nuance of character in showers of blood.

The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

A brilliant reminder of the glory days of Heroic Bloodshed ... call it a flashback, a comeback, or the end of an era; all I know is that I want to see it again.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

It's a fantasy of a crime epic, to be sure, but it's a glorious fantasy in which the unspoken bonds of brotherhood bathe every shootout and sacrifice in the light of myth.

... possibly the best work the prolific filmmaker has done. In addition to the masterful blend of humor and action ... Exiled is the most beautifully shot movie so far this year.

It looks slick, but without a little more steak beneath that sizzle, the pretense becomes intolerable.

Exiled is creative and bizarre, maybe too bizarre, but since most action films adhere to a cookie-cutter formula, its quirkiness is most welcome.

To packs the moments of contemplation with as much suspense as the action sequences and is a master of ratcheting up tension through small details.

Johnnie To, the director, is highly respected in this genre, and I suppose he does it about as well as you'd want it to be done, unless you wanted acting and more coherence.

This 2006 Hong Kong-produced gangster film by director Johnnie To, set in Macao, is an entertaining product that presents a powerful artistic vision.

Monsters and Critics

Heroic redemption succeeding where several thousand rounds of 9 mm ammo fail, Exiled makes a mark with the last stand of pals doomed by fate and the changing hands of time.

The rest of the film can't possibly sustain the energy of the opening moments, but director To makes up for it with many beautifully understated scenes and performances.

It's style over substance to be sure, but damn if it isn't a really cool style.

Even those wary of [director] To's eastern/western ethos cannot help but admire the stern panache of the best sequences.

This flamboyant, Peckinpah-ish ode to male bonding has a melancholy, fin de siècle splendor.
